Political parties need hefty amount of money to reach out to the electorate, explain their policies and receive inputs from people. In order to do the same, parties resort to political party funding. One of the primary sources of this funding is voluntary contributions made by individuals. Corporates pay hefty donations to parties in different forms. To bring transparency to the system of election funding the Government of India brought the Electoral Bond Scheme in 2018. However, the scheme itself has been criticised numerous times for being opaque than before.
